They were stuck. God led them into the wilderness but He never intended them to live in the wilderness.
Yes, Jesus has done so much for you and you have come a long way, baby, but don’t get stuck here.
You are not where you were but God is not done with you yet.
He has more for you.
Learning to live a new way is hard but don’t settle for wilderness living when you are called to the promised land in Christ.
Jesus says in John 10:10 “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
It doesn’t matter how long you have settled or how long you have been stuck, what matters is that you hear the word of the Lord calling you forward and reminding you that He has more for you.
Your journey does not end here.
Get up and get ready to fight for all God has for you.
